Listen in pop-out player

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Einstein's Annus Mirabilis of 1905.

Einstein's "miraculous year" proved once and for all the existence of atoms, formed the basis of quantum theory and, with special relativity, completely transformed our perception of space and time, leading to probably the most famous equation of all time: E=mc².

In Einstein's Shadow takes a look at the huge impact of Einstein's theories and talks to the scientists, who one hundred years later are still heavily influenced by his work.

Presented by Dr Brian Cox.
